  1. Our community seems to ignore the fact that we are in the middle of a Pandemic. STAY HOME… The infection rate is escalating at an alarming rate during the past month. Mum Feast, Ghost Walk, Pie, etc. etc. etc. All these events which should have been cancelled. They promote large gatherings of people which spreads the virus. Why can’t people understand, the only way we are going to get this under control is to avoid all gatherings, whether they be inside or outside. We are living in very UN-ordinary times and our behavior should reflect discipline and sacrifice….STAY HOME save lives.
